Victory Without Battle
But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not
save them by bow, nor by the sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen. (Hosea 1:7)
Precious word. Jehovah Himself will deliver His people in the greatness of His mercy, but He will not
do it by the ordinary means, Men are slow to render to God the glory due unto His name. If they go to
battle with sword and bow and win the victory, they ought to praise their God; yet they do not, but
begin to magnify their own right arm and glory in their horses and horsemen. For this reason our
Jehovah often determines to save His people without second means, that all the honor may be to
Himself alone.
Look, then, my heart, to the Lord alone and not to man. Expect to see God all the more clearly when
there is no one else to look to. If I have no friend, no adviser, no one at my back, let me be nonetheless confident if I can feel that the Lord Himself is on my side; yea, let me be glad if He gives victory
without battle, as the text seems to imply. Why do I ask for horses and horsemen if Jehovah Himself
has mercy upon me and lifts up His arm for my defense? Why need I bow or sword if God will save me?
Let me trust and not be afraid of this day forth and for evermore. Amen.
